    Hi,

    My friend has his 3G mobile net with a dongle in his MacBook.

    It seems he does not have WiFi,

    Would there be any way to have WiFi for his iPad with this set-up?

    bw, OKN
    (BTW with the USB cable connecting both, he cannot "see" his iPad in (Mac)iTunes, the same happened to me!)

    This should probably work.

    Mac OS X 10.6 Help: Sharing your Internet connection

    I'm not sure what the 3G dongle will show up as, or if it will show up as a source. That is what will decide if you can do it or not. You'll want to share to the Wi-Fi/Airport on the other side. This should set up a small internet hotspot the iPad can connect to.
